.
The Roads and Maritime Services has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of dragon boat races so boaters should keep clear of an area on the Tweed River this Sunday.

The exclusive use area applies on the river next to Murwillumbah Rowing Club near Mayal Creek from 8am to 5:00pm on Sunday 15 September.

This area will be used exclusively for the safe staging of dragon boat races organised by the Coolangatta – Mount Warning Dragon Boat Club.

The area will be marked by buoys and monitored by control vessels. For safety reasons, skippers should avoid this area as it will be closed for the event.

Vessels not involved in the event should not enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by a boating safety officer or a police officer.
